    If you’re looking for a solid point-and-click title, you need to look no further than TOHU. While the story can get a little vague, discovering this beautiful world is an absolute delight. The puzzles are difficult but fair, the art is stunning, and the music is stellar. A system without TOHU is incomplete.

    Tohu inspires with its art design and also performs a solid point & click performance with a few weaknesses.

    Tohu is a beautiful and fresh iteration on one of gaming’s old school genres. Cursor-based movement in docked mode, a short playtime, and shallow story aren’t enough to hold back the top-notch art and animations, intelligent puzzles, and incredible soundtrack from creating a memorable experience from beginning to end. For those fans of LucasArts and Double Fine, Tohu is worthy of your time, while probably not changing the minds of those who haven’t discovered the secret of Monkey Island or defeated those dreaded tentacles.
  4. 60
    Tohu is fairly well put together, but its 2-3-hour runtime, annoying hint system, and a few bugs make it hard to recommend at full price. If you're itching to play a point-and-click game and can get a great deal, Tohu is worth checking out. Otherwise, you'll be no worse off for skipping it.

    TOHU is a very classic point and click adventure, probably designed for a young audience or for fans of the genre who are not very familiar with puzzles and riddles.

    TOHU does a lot of things right and doesn’t really do anything seriously wrong, but I found myself feeling very ho-hum about it in the end. The art is really nice and I enjoyed many of the puzzles. But as pretty as it is, there’s something very “generic point-and-click adventure" about the game that keeps it from truly standing out. Touch controls work well enough but note that if you’re playing docked you’re going to have to deal with a relatively annoying cursor-based interface that doesn’t work all that well with a controller. There’s so much obvious love put into this game, but I’m not sure all that personality is enough to make this anything more than a fairly standard take on a well-worn concept.

    Though the game is pleasing visually and acoustically, it just wasn’t that compelling. There wasn’t anything outstanding about TOHU one way or the other. It is a decent point and click game, but without a driving story, I didn’t feel motivated to keep playing.
